Upcoming shows in Artist Pride Productions’ Cabaret Series include "Love is a Drag?" (Saturday, February 23), which examines relationships through the lens of artistic creation. Adopting a vaudeville-esque approach to its unified theme, the show features singers crooning odes to lost love, comedians dissecting the travails of dating, and female/male impersonators exploring the vagaries of gender identity. Later in the year, "A Night at the Movies" (Saturday, April 6) directs the limelight toward original films by such auteurs as Joel Nagle, Nicholas Ortiz, and Kate Marks, whose innovative work has won her screenings at Slamdance and the New Orleans Film Festival, a coveted Sarah Jacobson Film Grant, and a director’s chair made of crisp $100 bills.
Artistic Pride Productions
Choreographer and performing artist Anthony Wills Jr. coalesces his boundless interests into Artistic Pride Productions. As artistic director, he nurtures and guides the "collective of thought provoking and passionate artists dedicated to promoting and cultivating their work as an extension of the work of their peers. APP creates opportunities for artists of all genres to create work that is uniquely theirs and voice their opinions on important issues." To this end, Artistic Pride Productions splits profits 50/50 with artists. They're also constantly looking for new performers and have worked with over a hundred artists in the four years they've been producing. Artist Pride Productions’ regular Cabaret Series showcases its in-house talent in freewheeling shows that funnel a majority of the proceeds back to the performers, helping them support themselves or purchase clones to serve as their stunt doubles.
